    In case you missed it, a number of potential Republican presidential candidates went down to Las Vegas to bow at the feet of Sheldon Adelson, democracy-meddling billionaire extraordinaire. It was a pretty sorry sight as each of the potential candidates tried to out-Israel and out-tough the other as they vied for Adelson's attention. (And mustn't forget Sheldon bestowing actual awards for being a "great Zionist" in the past.) You can read more on my website.

    • Election Day 2011: In State After State, "Remarkable Wins for Progressive Politics"

      www.DemocracyNow.org - Advocates for labor, women's, and immigration rights are celebrating a number of key victories in Tuesday's state elections. In Ohio, voters defeated Republican Gov. John Kasich's controversial limits on the collective bargaining rights of state employees. In Arizona, Russell Pearce, the architect of the state's controversial anti-immigration law has lost his state senate seat in an unprecedented recall vote. Meanwhile in Maine, voters have defeated a Republican measure that barred same-day voter-registration on election day. For analysis, Democracy Now! speaks with reporter John Nichols of The Nation magazine. "There were many political insiders who said, 'Oh, don't pick this fight.' You'll note that President Obama and the Washington Democrats stayed clear of this battle in Ohio," Nichols says. "But in Ohio, on the ground, this grassroots movement, which literally put thousands and thousands of people at the doors, turned back a national conservative agenda. That's a big deal."

Thousands of Ohioans marched through the streets of the capitol in the People's Parade to deliver the signatures, which were over five times the number needed to get the bill on the ballot for a public referendum
